Activities During Period:
Packing - We continued packing this week. By the end of the day on Tuesday we had completed moving all items that required use of the gantry cranes and therefore we were able to shut down the generator for the season. On Thursday we officially finished packing. With a crew of eight people working 8.5 hour days it took seven days to pack the entire DISC drill system. Tear down and packing went very smooth.
